I have gotten in a few hours of steady hooking over the last couple of days; it's been so nice out I've brought everything outside and sat in the yard. All the hills are done and I'm almost done with the ocean.I'll hopefully finish that today and tomorrow start on the sky. Both Sio and John said it reminds them of Newfoundland, which is good because that's what I'm looking for. I can trust Sio for an honest critique; she says I need to work a bit more on color choices if I want a more realistic look. She asked me if I have colors planned out before I start dyeing, and generally I only do in a broad kind of way. I don't know how realistic I'm trying to be though; I like the primitive style of rug the best.
